It was great celebrating my first pro goal with my family – Ghana’s Kelvin Abrefa

Ghanaian youngster Kelvin Abrefa says it was great celebrating his first professional goal with his family on Sunday as Reading beat Watford in the FA Cup round 3.

The 19-year-old netted the opener in the third minute of added time as Reading claimed a 2-0 win at home to progress to the next round.

The wonder goal was thought to be coincidental but the youngster will take the credit for his efforts.

Reacting to the goal, Abrefa disclosed it was priceless to celebrate it with the people who were right behind him from the start.

When asked by Reading media if he was buzzing to score the goal, he said: “yeah, I am, I am, to be fair.

“I celebrated with my family and it was a great time. Yeah, it was. Having them right behind you as well. I see my brother jump up and then that’s when I see him and I thought I ran towards him.

“First, I was going to come to the lads when I saw my brother so I had to run to my brother.

“At least the people who support you through your journey, you know, you got your football club but your family, the ones who were there for the journey.”

The 19-year-old appeared once for the Black Satellites in the 2022 Toulon Tournament held in France.
